Meet The Ladies

Joy n' Company was established in 2016 by Rachel Salas and Michelle Searles. For several years, the pair helped operate the historic Villa in San Juan Capistrano. After time spent fulfilling their clients' biggest dreams, they decided to branch out and form a unique business that adds a funky fresh take to planning, while maintaining a strong commitment to excellence!
